Australian Test wicketkeeper Peter Nevill will play in red once again after re-signing with the Melbourne Renegades for BBL06.
The 31-year-old will play for the Renegades around his international schedule, as fellow gloveman Matthew Wade will share the keeping duties with Nevill throughout the season.
Nevill has played 20 matches for the Renegades over the past four seasons, and he is glad to be back playing for Melbourne once again.
“The BBL is a really exciting time of the year and I’m glad to continue in red with the Renegades this season. I’m looking forward to working with new coach Andrew McDonald and getting the team the results on the field,” Nevill said.
Renegades Head Coach Andrew McDonald is happy to regain Nevill’s services, and says the veteran brings added experience to his line-up.
“I’m pleased Peter will be joining us again this summer. He is an experienced player and has now been part of the Renegades setup for five seasons,” McDonald said.
“We’re obviously expecting him to represent Australia over the summer and both he and Matthew Wade will be putting their hands up for national selection. We’ll manage our wicketkeeping role around the selection decisions that are made in the weeks and months to come,” McDonald said.
